Craft Lab: Glittery Wreath REDO before and after







My mom picked this wreath up for me for $.25 at a yard sale last weekend. What a deal! A little rain here kept me out of the studio for 5 days, it was a bit chilly for me. So, I put on layers and braved the cold . First, I cut and tore all the country off the wreath. Since there were 20 hearts, I choose 5 different glitters. I glittered 4 at a time. I used a fresh jar of Mod Podge, it was thick and gooey, and had a fresh Mod Podge smell. I love this stuff. I painted on the glue, then sprinkled on the glitter. I'm pretty darn quick now. It took about 30 minutes.

Thanks for posting your redo of country items. I am out of my country phase, but the town I live in is still there. It is nice to get some ideas on how I can transform this stuff to fit my taste. Glitter is the best!
